Evergreen Planning to Host
Pre-Season Four-Banger Sunday
St. Johns, PA (2/1/2016)- Thus far the 2016 racing season
for the new management of Evergreen Raceway in St. Johns, PA
has been a success. From their first Enduro in January to
pre-registrations pouring in for their next Enduro, tagged
‘March Enduro Madness’, the year is off to a great start.
And, it’s only getting better.
After recent discussions amongst key track officials,
Evergreen has decided to host a non-points pre-season event
for their regular Four Cylinder and INEX Legends divisions
on Sunday, March 20. The INEX Bandoleros are also on the
Both, the Four Cylinders and INEX Legends drivers will draw
for starting positions in an eight lap heat race, their heat
race finish, mixed with a redraw will determine the starting
lineup for their 30-lap main event. The number of feature
laps for the INEX Bandoleros will be decided on race day,
based on car count.
“Although the track officials have run one race day together
so far, this show will be a great opportunity for the
officials of a regular Sunday show to work together, prior
to the start of the points season”, noted track manager,
Evergreen Announces ‘March
Enduro Madness’ Enduros & Releases 2016 Season Schedule
Following a terrific turnout for Evergreen’s ‘Snowball 100s’
Enduros in early January, the track has decided to host yet
another day of wintertime excitement on Saturday, March 12.
Like done for the Snowball event, three popular divisions
are slated to take the first green flag on the afternoon of
Saturday, March 12th- the 4-cylinders and 6/8-cylinders.
Both will compete in 100-lap events and fight to the finish
for the $500 prize. A third division, ‘Open Competition’,
has been added for 50-laps of action and unlike the last
event, this class will go out first, prior to debris being
on the racing surface.
A handful of sponsors have
jumped on board to help support the show as well, including
several area businesses. Thanks to their support, not only
will the top five finishers in each division receive money,
but 6th through 10th in the 4-cylinder
and 6/8-cylinder Enduro classes will each receive $25.

great start to a new era, yet no one knew exactly how
popular the show would become. When it was all said and
done, Ed Brown, Jr. claimed the 6-8Cylinder Enduro victory
and Luke Colleran took top honors in the 4-Cylinder
division. Scott Adams cruised to victory in the 25-lap Open

Jason Makarewicz to Give New Life to Evergreen
2016 Season Plan is in Full Effect
St. Johns, PA- After closing its doors midway through the 2014 season,
Evergreen Raceway Park in St. Johns, PA will soon have new life. Operating
under the Evergreen banner, the historic 1/3-mile asphalt oval will once
again host racing in 2016, with former Late Model driver Jason Makarewicz
“I am very happy to be able to bring racing back to Northeastern PA and give
fans and racers their home track back,” said Makarewicz, who isn’t only a
former competitor at the track, but also a Factory Stock division car owner
and of course a huge fan of the speedway since his youth.
One major change coming to the track in 2016 is the race day. Throughout the
entirety of the season, racing will take place on Sunday afternoons.
“With so many tracks choosing Saturday as their day, it would not make sense
to go head-to-head with other tracks in the surrounding area,” Makarewicz
Makarewicz knows having someone who can promote the track is key to being
successful and has tabbed Billy Bartley as promoter. Bartley is a former
promoter at Evergreen (also known as Mountain Speedway) and the very popular
Enduro series in the early to mid 2000s.
Bartley is sure to be a popular pick among drivers throughout the tri-state
area due to making the event more than just a race.
Divisions, rules package, and schedule are in the process of being completed
and will be released in the near future. Evergreen Raceway is eyeing a
January Enduro for their inaugural event, with more information to be
released in the coming weeks. The speedway plans to look into using a harder
tire compound to save competitors money and put on a better show for the
Makarewicz would also like to thank those who volunteered their time during
the summer to keep the facility in good shape.
In the meantime, get those cars dusted off and prepared for an action packed
year of racing at your Evergreen Raceway.
In the next few weeks and into winter, please keep
your eyes peeled on what’s ahead for Evergreen. A brand new website is in
the works and the official domain name will be released shortly. For the
interim, you can visit their temporary website at
